Many students, these days are found flocking towards foreign universities and the numbers are increasing at an alarming rate as compared to bygone times. While there are a few drawbacks to this trend, I feel there are equally compelling advantages which prod our youngsters to look out for higher education in other countries. The following paragraphs give more insight into this subject.
The paramount reason for which students prefer foreign universities is the higher standards of facilities and infrastructure as compared to Indian universities. Moreover, there are more number of avenues for knowledge gain and information collection. Another benefit is the personal growth through interaction with people from different cultural backgrounds. Many countries promote part time jobs, and hence our youngsters are opened up to such opportunities which will financially aid them.
On the contrary, there are a few negatives that need to be scrutinized. Firstly, the revenue that would have been available for our education sector is simply diverted to that of another country, resulting in a revenue drain. Secondly, the students who fly abroad for education tend to take up jobs and settle down there, never to return. This is a serious concern, popularly called the ‘brain-drain’ resulting in a dip in available talents for our country. Thirdly, young students simply try to follow the trend, which may not be affordable to many families.
In conclusion, there are a few negatives for the trend of students migrating abroad for education, but there are an equal number of positives as well. Whether foreign education is necessary is a subjective matter and individuals must consider personal and national interests before opting for it.
